While most of the region has dried out late this afternoon and evening, a few spots have received locally heavy rainfall from slow-moving showers and storms: (1) southern Delaware and adjacent portions of eastern Maryland and (2) the southern New Jersey Pine Barrens. Flood Advisories are in effect for both areas. Radar estimates of 1-3" of rain has fallen, resulting in poor drainage flooding.

***Evening Update*** Rain continues to gradually overspread the region from southwest to northeast and will continue to do so through this evening. The rain could be heavy at times overnight and while we are not expecting any widespread, major problems, localized urban and small stream flooding could occur in a few spots. The heaviest rain tapers off Wednesday morning but some showers may return by afternoon. Thursday will feature a respite with sunshine and relatively warm temperatures before the next system could bring some more rain by Friday. In the longer range, the outlook heading into next week is for mainly dry and progressively warmer weather!

On Saturday, nearly 200 high school students from across Philadelphia gathered in Point Breeze to partner with two dozen community groups and civic organizations for Point Breeze Day of Service: Spring 2018, a day of community service to honor the legacies of a few local fallen heroes with the Travis Manion Foundation. Volunteers planted nearly 50 street trees, with Point Breeze Tree Tenders and East Point Breeze Neighbors, we cleaned up an alley and the park at Manton Green, picked up a few hundred bags of trash and leaves at Wharton Square Park 23rd & Wharton Street and Chew Rec Center, helped out at the 4th Annual Point Breeze 5K and Free Health Fair, as well as overall street and alley trash picking up across the neighborhood. Temple University Army ROTC and the 17th Police District Advisory Council came out in full force to help clean up two community parks. Thank you to all who participated!

Severe weather awareness week continues. Today's topic is severe thunderstorms. The definition of a severe thunderstorm is hail of 1" in diameter or larger and/or winds of at least 58 mph. The best place to be in a severe thunderstorm is inside a building. If that isn't available, a second, but not as good, option is inside a vehicle (excluding convertibles).

Demolition has begun on the old Frankford Chocolate Factory in South Philly, despite preservationist concerns

Frankford Chocolate Factory at 2101 Washington Ave. ((OCF Realty)

L&I spokeswoman Karen Guss says the demolition permit, when he seeks it, will exempt the smokestack and its adjoining building at the corner of 22nd Street and Washington Avenue.

    Neighbors bid a reluctant goodbye to South Philly chocolate factory, welcome new homes and shops
    The Frankford Chocolate Factory looms over Washington Avenue in South Philadelphia, covering an entire city block, anchoring the roadway in the industrial uses that dominated it for the past century or more. In 2006, the red-brick factory that could once claim to be the nation's largest manufacturer of chocolate Easter bunnies closed down.
